Georgian Revival Estate
Mission Hills, KS
The house design is based on a traditional center hall plan and traditional Georgian details. Some of these details include custom designed bracketed moldings at the frieze (made of Spanish cedar); Indiana Limestone quoins and lintels, and a custom designed carved stone entry surround. Each detail has been carefully considered in terms of size; scale, and historical appropriateness. The exterior of the house is constructed of antique brick in the traditional Flemish Bond pattern. The roof is Vermont Slate with built-in copper lined box gutters.
A carriage house/cabana, overlooking the pool and traditional English garden is connected to the main structure by a veranda. The paving around the pool and garden is an ashler pattern limestone field with brick edging.
The interior of the house is designed in a traditional manner. Highlights include an antique long leaf pine paneled library; custom carved rosettes for the frieze board in the formal living and dining rooms; imported 18th century fireplace surrounds; custom-made figured walnut raised panel doors, and reclaimed antique oak flooring.
